1156 Motherboard for $130-$150

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im looking for a 1156 motherboard to replace the MSI GD80 that i sent back for rma. Im PERFECTLY fine with open box motherboards. So i think that might be worth it for the price im looking for. Right now, im looking at a few motherboards

MSI GD80
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130238R
$124.99

ASUS Sabertooth 55i
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131601R
$144.99

Gigabyte UD5
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813128402R
$149.99 (might be pushing the price a little too much)

ASUS P7P55D-E Pro
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131621R
$141.99

So, out of the listed motherboards, what board do you guys think would push my i5 750 to the highest OC with 1600 DDR3 RAM?

Any other suggestions are welcome, including non OB items.

Ive heard that a gigabyte ud4p and a ud5 have 12 phase power, while gd80 doesn't. Is that true? Im leaning towards either the gd80, or the UD5 or UD4P if it comes back in OB stock.

GD80 is 14 phase with 8 for the cpu. It's more then enough for normal oc'ing. If you are going crazy extreme, sub zero then you would probably want higher phase.

I'd lean to the Gigabyte as well. I've had good experiences with my Core i5 750 sitting on a Gigabyte P55M-UD2.

Even though I have an MSI I would recommend the Gigabyte as well. They tend to be more solid boards for overclocking.

All are good. Personally I'd pick MSI over Gigabyte, but then again I actually own the Sabertooth 55i. It's pretty balls to the wall. Wish it had Sata 3 and USB 3 but hey, still pretty good.
